Old Door Turned Shelf

I am just loving all this repurposing these days.  I think it is becoming a problem, every time I get a new piece or find something new, instead of thinking what color should I paint it I start brainstorming what I can turn it into.  
Who would guess this used to be an old door?  

This isn't the best tutorial, but if you are good with power tools I think you can figure it out!

You need to make sure your door is solid wood or this will not work.

We used a skill saw to cut each of these panels apart

Once they were all cut apart we added crown molding to the top and a piece of wood on the bottom (not pictured here) to finish off 

Once we had it all put together I used putty to fill the nail holes and caulked all the cracks so it would paint up nice and smooth.  Once it was painted with Valspars Peach Fuzz I added this pretty wood appliqué and added old door knobs for hooks!  


You can follow me here:
